Title: Hereditary Diffuse Gastric Cancer - Endoscopy
Description: Three endoscopic images of the inside of the stomach showing several small, white, slightly depressed, scar-like lesions.

Tres fotografías endoscópicas del interior del estómago en las que se observan múltiples lesiones pequeñas de aspecto cicatricial, ligeramente deprimidas y de color blanco.

Several small, white, slightly depressed areas are best seen with narrow-band imaging. These lesions can resemble scars from previous endoscopic biopsies. However, the images above are from a patient who did not have a prior esophagogastroduodenoscopy. A microscopic signet ring cell carcinoma focus was found on this biopsy, although non-targeted biopsies in this patient were also positive for signet ring cell carcinoma.

En las imágenes de banda estrecha se observan mejor múltiples áreas pequeñas, blancas y ligeramente deprimidas. Estas lesiones parecen cicatrices de biopsias endoscópicas previas; sin embargo, las fotografías que se muestran corresponden a un paciente que no se había sometido antes a una esofagogastroduodenoendoscopia. En la biopsia que se obtuvo se encontró un foco microscópico de carcinoma de células en anillo de sello.
